I am helping to plan and co-lead online training on Stress, Loss, and Grief , for a GENERAL (IE non-professional) audience. We plan to use the Zoom meeting application.
I am seeking trauma-informed recommendations about how to provide virtual safe spaces for participants, who may be triggered by something arising out of the training and may need support from someone, who is prepared to do so, if needs arise.
How might Zoom or alternative / additional platforms or communication technology be employed to offer optional safe spaces during and following the training?
In addition, what pre-event training, such as Psychological or Mental Health First Aid, would be most helpful to prepare those, who will be "staffing" these safe spaces?
